Monte Pascoal Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 cigar features a dark brown wrapper with a soft spongy give and slight tooth. It has even construction, a double cap and a peppery tobacco aroma. First light reveals a very smooth, slick medium bodied smoke giving aged tobacco taste with a creamy mouthfeel. The draw is perfect and smoke output is good. The first third builds on those same flavors with a slight sweetness but with a meaty quality. It’s kind of hard to describe because the flavors are very well blended together, you don’t pickup on one big flavor after another, it’s very subtle. 30 minutes in just past the 1/2 way point, flavors have shifted slightly dropping the aged tobacco and bringing the savory and pepper notes up a notch. Overall body is still medium while strength is up a bit also at medium-full giving a slight buzz. Smoke output is excellent as well as construction with a perfect draw and burn. Ending at 50 minutes, the last third showed no further changes.
Thank you very much to tabacosmatafinausa.com for generously sending this for review!

    Creamy, smooth, rich, savory and a bit of sweetness. Sounds good to me. Thanks for the review Bryan.

    Bryan, the first CAO Brazilia I had made me think ‘graham cracker with meat’. Sweetened moreso with honey rather than sugar, though definitely savory. I’ve seen the Bahia region wrappers described as ‘semisweet’ in the literature. Definitely enjoyable to me, I’m generally a Maduro smoker. I recently had a famous smokeshop La Floridita, similar tobacco and flavors, though cheaper filler blend. You mentioned awhile back the interesting flavors coming out of Brazil, I now know what you mean. When I see Mata Fina and Arapiraca in the description, I make a mental note. Monte Pascoal would be my first true Brazilian cigar. Hope I win! Thanks for the review.

    How can one go wrong investing in this cigar with this kind of review .. I’ve never heard of this cigar before but it’s tweaked my interest now , i’d like to try for myself how it compares to the “Ave Maria” which was rated by cigar.com as the Best Cigar of 2010.
